I'm known by my friends as the 'Postcard Queen' as I love to send and receive postcards! I especially like postcards with hearts on them as I used to have a heart collection. I also like postcards of the sea, lakes, mountains, flowers and cats!!
I lived overseas in Canada (Montreal/Toronto) for 13 years and then spent 5 years living in Paris before returning to the UK - I've been back here for over 26 years. I was a primary school teacher in London and also in Montreal and latterly I worked as a Personal Assistant for a major drinks company but decided to semi-retire in April 2010.
About 10 years ago I qualified as a Holistic Massage Therapist and I really enjoy giving treatments such as Reiki and Indian Head Massage. I volunteer at a Hospice and give people who attend the Day Care Centre complementary therapy treatments. It's so very rewarding to spend time with these ladies.
8 years ago I decided to pursue singing as a hobby. Initially I joined one of London's biggest choirs (over 300 members)and every year in November they performed at the Royal Albert Hall - which is such an exciting venue. I then decided to do something very different and joined a 'Jazz Choir' for 2 terms and that was fun too. Last year I finally got to sing The Messiah at a wonderful venue - St. Albans Abbey. I also enjoy going to the theatre, movies, concerts and just being out and about with friends. I'd love to hear from you and all about where you live.
Please remember to put the date on your postcard before you send it. If possible please don't send me free/publicity postcards - thank you.
Deirdre (The Postcard Queen!!)
